This Week's Hot Grocery Deals (IMHO)

We have new sales starting today at our Boulder Sprouts stores, while the current one continues at Whole Foods through August 11th, and at Vitamin Cottage through the 15th (look below for those). Here's what's looking good to me now.

At Sprouts, first of all, they'll be doing another 72 hour sale this weekend, from Friday through Sunday, where the standout to me is Olathe sweet corn at five for $1. Much as I love my local Munson corn, it will be hard to resist Olathe when it's practically being given away. In Sprouts' regular sale today through the 12th, I'm liking fresh ground chicken at $2.99 a pound, whole or split chickens $1.69 a pound, chicken Italian sausage (pork also) $3.99 a pound, and pork tenderloin $2.77 a pound. Chicken breast tenders are also $2.77 a pound, but you'd do much better picking up the boneless skinless chicken breasts that are $1.88 a pound in the overlapping Wednesday sale that ends today. In fish, huge 13/15 count previously frozen raw ez peel shrimp are $7.99 a pound, and wild cod fillets have been better than their current $8.49 a pound. Fresh farmed salmon is $6.99 a pound, although I'd definitely go for wild in this fresh wild season. Sprouts isn't advertising its price on that this week, but keep in mind that fresh wild sockeye fillets are $7.99 a pound with card at both Safeway and King Soopers this week if you need an alternative.

In produce at Sprouts, the big news to me is in conventional rather than my usual organic, as avocado fans will be pleased to see Hass avocados at three for $1. In organic produce, on-the-vine cluster tomatoes are stunning at 98 cents a pound (pair them with that fresh mozzarella on sale at Whole Foods), baby carrots are $1.50 for a one pound bag, red bell peppers are $1.50 each, and strawberries, blueberries, raspberries or blackberries are all $2.88 a container (six-ish ounces for all but the strawberries, which are one pound). Elsewhere in the store, I'm liking all Kashi products 30% off, plus when you buy four of them (except Golean cereal cups), you'll also save $4 on fresh produce. I detest coconut, but since so many people like it, I might as well mention that a whole lot of coconut products are 25% off.
